Jeremiah 24:6 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge - Those already carried away into captivity, I esteem as far more excellent than those who still remain in the land. They have not sinned so deeply, and they are now penitent; and, therefore, I will set mine eyes upon them for good, Jeremiah 24:6. I will watch over them by an especial providence, and they shall be restored to their own land.

The Worst Things Work for Good to the Godly
